(New York City) May 20th, 2014—Huntspoint.com, a leading online provider of high-quality meat, is pleased to announce Barbecue America Magazine will feature Huntspoint.com pork spare ribs on the cover of the premier issue of the magazine, available on newsstands and online on May 2. Huntspoint.com also provided Barbecue AmericaMagazine with several other cuts of imported and domestic meats that will be highlighted in subsequent issues of the magazine.
During a January 2014 photo shoot in Pennsylvania, Barbecue America Magazine worked with Huntspoint.com to provide unique and customized cuts of meat including Wagyu beef brisket, Wagyu steaks, Japanese ground beef, Hatfield St. Louis-cut ribs, Berkshire St. Louis ribs, Berkshire pork butt, Angus Tomahawk ribeye steaks, Compart Duroc pork butts, Compart Duroc St. Louis ribs and Compart Duroc baby back ribs. These cuts, grilled, smoked, and seared, will be included across the first seven issues of the magazine.
“I’ve been all over the world looking for the best meat and Huntspoint.com is truly a one-stop shop for high-quality, competition grade meats,” said Rick Browne, editor-in-chief of Barbecue America Magazine. “We turned to Huntspoint.com to provide us with AMAZING, unique cuts of meat that would help us build recognition for our magazine. As you’ll see in the upcoming issues, they didn’t disappoint.”
Grill like a World Champion—grill with Hunts Point. In 2013 Huntspoint.com started its program of supporting barbecue by sponsoring competitive teams across the country. This commitment has paid off as several of its sponsored teams notched wins at regional and national contests. Huntspoint.com has also started strong for the 2014 season, with teams supplied by Huntspoint winning two Reserve Grand Championships and a state championship in April, and a number of top-5 category placings at competitions in New York, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.
“When we first heard about the plans for Barbecue America Magazine, we were excited—as barbecuers, not as businesspeople—that the barbecue world was going to get its own magazine,” said Lovely Love, CEO of Huntspoint.com. “And of course, getting on the cover is a huge honor. We got into this business because we love barbecuing and wanted to connect people like us to the best meat available. We really appreciate the recognition, especially coming from people who love the barbecue world as much as we do.”
